Out-Of-Towners


This was a collaboration between my funny friends and myself. Casey Sandin provided the punch-line, and Steve Nicodemus helped with the dialog. They are both co-workers at Warner Bros. I think it's a success, and I've always said, the best gags come from brainstorming sessions with like-minded people. Hope you like it. -Ted

  2. HA! Ohhhh that's sad!! my friends and i all have restricted diets. one has celiac's disease (gluten intolerant), one has a latex allergy (can't eat food prepared with certain gloves) and is severely allergic to tropical fruits, one is allergic to CORN which is the hardest, since everything has high fructose corn syrup in it, and i and husband are vegetarian. SO, we are the most pain in the ass set of customers in the entire world, and we are fully aware of this. We tip VERY, VERY well.

  4. Love the final Ted! The characters are perfect. The wife looks like the modern version of a prude adapting to the new Eco-Religion. Although I eat that health stuff too, don't get me wrong, Ha! PC!

  5. Hey Tek, Yeah, that was a wordy dialog, so I was worried about losing you before you got to the punch. ha ha. Glad you waited.

    Thanks, Sir Charles!

    Tiffanny, I tried being a vegetarian for about a year but got so sick of eating salads I went back to chicken and fish. I didnt notice any difference in my health or miserable outlook either . Ha!

    Megan, I forgot about that scene, that was funny. Of course it was completely overshadowed by the fake orgasm thing, followed up by the woman saying, I'll have what she's having'.

    Thanks Steve, and thanks for your comic genius! Now get a new avatar, nobody cares that you were standing in the street in front of some important place :)

  6. This made me bark out loud, hilarious! I relate with Tek: where is this going and then ya read the note. You can bet this has happened.

    This reminds me of the scene in "Return to me" where the women orders the french brand of bottled water and what Minnie Driver gives her . . . gotta see.

  9. Hahaha, he's so getting the spit sandwich!
    I feel like there are quite a few people who are like him here in NYC..
    I wonder how often people actually get some spit in their food!

    Cheers,
